Andrew Robinson, candidate for the West Virginia State Senate 17th District, is a lifelong resident of the Kanawha Valley. Andrew was active growing up in the Kanawha Valley including youth sports and other activities where he gained many role models. These role models were inspirations for Andrew to be an active contributor to youth and his community as a whole as an adult. Andrew's parents were another source of strong role models in his development, his mother starting her career with the Social Security Administration as a clerical worker and climbing the rungs to retire as an Area Supervisor. His father joined the Navy directly out of High School, as college was not an option financially, and went on to become a successful entrepreneur. Both parents instilled a work ethic in Andrew, which has been a blessing to his career and personal life.
Andrew graduated from Capital High School in 2004 and attended West Virginia University, graduating with a Multidisciplinary Studies Degree. While at West Virginia University Andrew completed four years as an apprentice Auctioneer and attended World Wide College of Auctioneering, to gain his Auctioneer’s license. Also, while at West Virginia University, Andrew finished his education and state examination to become a licensed Real Estate Agent.
Upon returning to Charleston, Andrew pursued a career in Real Estate including sales, investments and management, eventually achieving a Real Estate Broker’s License. In 2012, Andrew added the pursuit of a Real Estate Appraisal Certification and his Masters Degree in Corporate and Organizational Communication, achieving both of these goals in 2015. Andrew's completion of his Real Estate Appraisal Certification was followed with an appointment, by Governor Earl Ray Tomblin, to the Property Valuation Training and Procedures Commission.
In addition to his professional and educational life, Andrew enjoys time with his son, Brayden. Andrew is active in numerous activities with Brayden including, Cub Scouts, Little League Baseball, soccer and basketball. Along with Brayden's activities, Andrew spent three years coaching the Horace Mann Middle School Boy's Soccer team. Andrew’s participation in these events stem directly from the positive influences he had as a youth in similar activities.
Andrew Robinson’s personal and professional life has always revolved around the State of West Virginia and the Kanawha Valley. While attending West Virginia University other students would speak of their wish to leave the area, but Andrew always new West Virginia and the Kanawha Valley would always be his home. Gaining so much from his community over the years, Andrew has seen positive influences and contributors, which had a significant impact on his life. Due to his experience with these positive influences, Andrew is excited for his opportunity to contribute and influence his community in an active role in the West Virginia State Legislature.

In Their Words...
I have known the Robinson family for many years and have observed Andrew grow to be the fine young man he is. We need our younger generation involved in our political process and I believe, if elected, Andrew will be a very good legislator.

I’ve known Andrew Robinson his whole life- his coach and as his friend. He is a man who passionately cares about the Kanawha Valley and will work tirelessly to make the 17th District thrive and prosper.

Andrew Robinson has a special place in my heart. He was my student at Horace Mann Middle School. He worked hard and achieved a lot. He would be an asset to the state.

As a team player, Andrew will work across the aisle with both Democrats and Republicans to make West Virginia a better state to work and play.

I would like the opportunity
to represent the constituents of
West Virginia's 17th Senate District.
Growing up in Charleston, West Virginia and attending West Virginia University you consistently hear the negative about this great state. We hear about the limited opportunities for employment and entertainment. As a proud West Virginian these statements are hurtful as this state has many great qualities.
Over the years we have failed to recognize our potential in providing a positive environment for our children and other citizens.
I have one promise to the voters in the 17th District, all legislation I introduce or support will directly help or improve
West Virginian's lives in one way or another. I will work closely with fellow Senators to improve the state and no legislation
from my desk will be national political propaganda that furthers my political party and does nothing for our state.
